How is it jamming specifically?
What specifically are you doing when it jams?

Some possible causes of the problem could be:
bad ammo
gun just doesn't like that type of ammo
limp wristing
magazine feed lips out of adjustment
magazine not fully seated in the gun
poor condition of feed ramp

Have you cleaned it lately? 22 ammo is very dirty.

Is the ammo just plain lead or does the bullet have a jacket on it? I have seen non-jacketed/non-plated lead ammo that "grows" in diameter because the lead gets a kind of corrosion on the outside making the bullet larger.
